The Secretariat is responsible for supporting the activities of the governing structure of JPI HDHL and was financed through two European Commission Coordination and Support Actions (until February 2021) and from then on by a membership fee contibuted by the JPI HDHL member countries.

The Secretariat is coordinated by ZonMw and has two further partners. The Secretariat serves as the central hub for all of JPI HDHLs activities and the central point of communication with the different bodies of JPI HDHL. Its responsibilities include the development of strategy and action plans and overseeing the implementation of these plans. The secretariat – in close collaboration with the Chair and Steering Committee of JPI HDHL also develops links with other public and private transnational research initiatives as well as towards the relevant DGs of the EC.

The current Secretariat consists of:

  • ZonMw, the Netherlands Organisation of Health Research and Development, Netherlands
